Although now well established as a method of helping people, counselling, particularly online counselling is still an unknown to many people. So I have written some of the more commonly asked questions and my replies so that you may feel better informed and comfortable. Please see below.

Counsellors Online Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I choose online counselling and life coaching?
Access online counselling privately and anonymously from your own home or work place.

Access online counselling privately and anonymously from your own home or work place.

A: For many people online counselling and life coaching is an ideal way of seeking confidential, professional, counselling help and support. You won’t have to travel to work with a professional counsellor, you can respond in your own time and you don’t need to let others know that you are seeking counselling or therapy. No one will ever see you entering a counselling room, so there is a higher level of confidentiality.

It may seem strange at first not to talk to a counsellor face to face, however that can be one of online counselling’s greatest attractions too. You can be as anonymous as you want to be and access an online counsellor or life coach from the convenience of your own home or work place, in fact anywhere you have an internet connection, many people are now accessing online counselling via public libraries and even from their smartphones.

The other important consideration of online counselling is that Counsellors Online now offers the most affordable counselling online available anywhere, only £38 for a full 50 Minute session and a special 30 Minute introductory session for only £20.

These are all very good reasons to choose online counselling.

Feel free and authentic again in a short time.

A: Sometimes online counselling and life coaching clients can be helped to see a way forward quite quickly, most people will see or feel a difference after the first session, often they describe being filled with hope.  The experienced counsellor will want to help you in as shorter time as possible, whilst allowing you time and space to go at the pace that seems appropriate for you.

Q: Do I need to bring a big problem to online counselling?
All problems, big or small, are important.

All problems, big or small, are important.

A: Big or small, if it is a problem for you then it can be helpful to talk about it  with a qualified online counsellor in total confidence. We can work together to stop a crisis happening by addressing the small problems before they become a big issue.

Preventing a crisis is always easier than dealing with it when you are in the middle of it. Talking always helps and a problem shared with a counsellor, is most often a problem solved.
